Aaron Rodgers announces engagement during MVP acceptance

Aaron Rodgers announces engagement during MVP acceptance

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won’t get the ring as a Super Bowl winner this season. However, did give a ring to someone, announcing his engagement Saturday during the acceptance speech for his AP MVP award.

The Packers’ quarterback was voted NFL MVP for the third time after a season that saw him throw for 4,299 yards with 48 touchdowns against five interceptions.

The Packers won the NFC North but were eliminated by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In his speech, Rodgers discusses the oddity that was 2020 — “180 straight days of having my nose hairs scraped” — and then casually says “I got engaged.”

He mentions some of the special people in his life — including “my fiancee.” Rodgers didn’t say who it is but the speculation is it’s 29-year-old Shailene Woodley.

She is an actress from “Big Little Lies” Rodgers has been said to be dating since his breakup with racecar driver Danica Patrick.
